I graduated college last year, start my job last month.
Have decent income with benefits (around 55k yearly after taxes), no debts (gonna buy a new car soon plan to pay it off in a year or two at the most), still living with parents so bills are minimal.
Problems I'm having is that my other friends my age are still in school full time, broke, or work way more then I do (I only work 3 days a week).
Leaving me well...bored.
>Also I'm 20 years old, turn 21 in 4 months
I want some advice on hobbies I could pick up to fill the void and maybe meet some new people.
creative hobbies tend to be the most fulfilling, even if the person isnt very creative. you can either consume or create. consumers tend to get bored with consumption cuz the pay offs are too easy and limited.
its the difference between watching a movie and making one. reading a comic and drawing one. listening to an audio play and writing one. watching a play and being in one. drinking during the super bowl and tackling a fat guy who holds a ball.
things that have goals are the best hobbies because they pressure you itno conintuing. you may like to draw but just doodling gets boring. having a comic you release with 6 issues intended force syou to keep working til the comic is done. and the rush you get in completion is amazing. even if it sucks.
for those who arent into story telling, making a video game, something as simple as rpgmaker, or perhaps making furniture or learning something new just for the fun of it at a community college or what have you.
glad someone likes it. most responses i get are
>im not good at stuff
only thing i recommend on top of this is just not being afraid to go from one hobby to the other to test it out. see hat you like the most
maybe commit to writing a short story before a novel. then draw one issue of a comic to seei f you like that. then try making your own table. little things. when you find something that really excites you. escalate that situation. when you complete something try another beforej umping back in, etc.
if you arent pursuing these as a career there is no reason why you cant jump around when one loses its spark either.
